Create a raised, covered space to place your surface once you've poured your paint, such as thumbtacks in cardboard or a baker's rack.
Clean Pour – the Clean Pour technique allows for more controlled, flowing of paint resulting in more defined shapes. This is also called a direct pour. First, mix each color with pouring medium in a separate cup, then pour each cup individually and directly onto your project surface. Wearing gloves, then lift and tile your surface to allow the paint to flow as desired.
Dirty Pour – the Dirty Pour technique creates an elegant, marbled effect. A flip-cup pour is also a form of dirty pour. Mix all or multiple colors with medium in a cup, then pour onto your project surface as desired.
- Remove the drawers from your dresser and attach them together with screws so that they resemble one long drawer. Remove the knobs from the drawers.
- Pour your Midnight Garden, Wicker White, Seashell Pink, Mauve Dust, and Pale Gray on the front of your drawers and tilt/swirl until you reach your desired pattern. Allow to dry fully.
- Paint the remainder of your dresser in Midnight Garden and let dry.
Drying and Finishing
Place your painted project on the raised surface and allow to dry and cure for 24-48 hours for optimal results. Once dry, seal your project with FolkArt Varnish.
